This afternoon I climbed up on the roof to check the downspouts,
and I found the chimney cap to be in rather sad condition:
Can any of our resident chimney experts suggest what needs to be
done here? Obviously a new chimney cap is in order. Perhaps I can
simply replace the existing cap with a stainless steel cap that fastens
around the exposed flue liner? Or should I be worrying about the
condition of the flue liner? If so, what needs to be done?
The chimney is used only by an oil-fired gas furnace.
